Poke (pronounced poh-kay), the bite-size marinated fish salad famous in Hawaii, is so popular that it's sold by the pound in supermarkets. Now it has crossed the Pacific to become the meal-in-a-bowl du jour, served in eateries from Los Angeles to New York. But it's easy to make at home with this quick recipe. Sriracha and Chinese-style mustard add a touch of heat to the classic poke seasoning of soy sauce and sesame oil. Serving it over a brown rice salad makes it a meal.

Great and easy recipe. I've made this twice now once with salmon and once with tuna. Both excellent! Presentation is very attractive. People think you worked hard but this is really easy to do. Read More

Previously frozen salmon is used because the dish is served raw. Freezing kills any potential parasites. Read More

Great! I chickened out and baked the salmon and swapped capers for caviar so it was haole/gringo poke but the recipie was still very good. I think it would do well with cut pineapple on it and will do that next time. Read More
